Before the start of the performance, the attendees were kindly asked not to shoot any pictures or videos. Nothing but the memory should remain.
A square of 200 cm by 200 cm was marked out with masking tape on the wall. The section created was painted with the same masonry paint as the rest of the wall. When the entire square was painted, the marking tape was removed and the floor was cleaned from any spilled paint.
After this was completed, you could still discern the square, but as the paint was drying the square slowly vanished, and blended in with the wall.
The attendees left when every trace had disappeared.
Vierkant was part of the Performance Festival With Traces,
